For unto us a Child is born,
Unto us a Son is given;
And the government will be upon His shoulder.
And His name will be called
Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Isa. 9:6

Jesus came to bring peace to the earth, but not the kind of peace most people would think. Actually, His life brought anything but peace in the natural world. All but one of His twelve disciples died a martyr’s death. Christ Himself was hated more than any man who has ever lived. Families have been split up, wars have been fought, His life has brought anything but peace to this world. What kind of peace did Christ come to bring? He brought peace that comes from forgiveness of sins. He brought peace that comes from resigning to His sovereign plan. He brought peace that comes from deliverance from the foolish pleasures of this world. He is the Prince of Peace to those who have embraced His love. Here is another one of my Christmas poems, I hope you enjoy it.


Restless heart you struggle so
Searching for repose
Looking for that place of rest
That rest man seldom knows

Lonely heart-Your grieving so
When will the sadness end
You get back up- to face the world
To just fall back again

Anxious Heart-You worry so
Your trust seems far away
Who can you trust when things go wrong
Who will you trust today

Ambitious heart – it never ends
Will there ever be a time
When you can stop this torrid rush
And place your hand in mine

Hungry heart has found its food
To still this longing soul
To satisfy the heart of man
To make the sinner whole

In Bethlehem the house of bread
Not far from Calvary
I gave my life for you my son
That you could feast on me

Today, your search for peace can be over, we can find our rest in Him. Remember the famous words of Augustine, “Our hearts are restless until they find their rest in Thee”. You can come to Bethlehem today and feast on the Bread that comes from heaven. This is the place of rest. In the world there is no peace, but there is an amazing peace found in Jesus Christ, the Prince of Peace.

  2. The peace of Jesus Christ – to those that have accepted Christ we have a skip in our step, a song in our hearts and a smile on our face in what many would consider the worst of conditions. The world and those of it see through an opaque lens. That one is for Pastor Paris!
    They, the world, only see the physical conditions and it doesn’t look good. The world sees what seems to be the worst possible scenario and foolish, crazy people in total denial running, dancing and singing praises to God for all He does!
    His children see beyond this world and it’s foolishness; just a glimpse of what is on the other side of the veil. Thank You, Jesus! Cause we know, the worse possible scenario ended when we accepted Christ as our Savior and our Lord! Now we sit at the King’s table feasting on the Bread of Life and Living Water. All we see is His Glory and are surrounded by His peace. No longer are we working in vain, trying to achieve His approval/acceptance – it’s a free gift and with it comes life abundantly, peace and joy all the while doing His work –

    preach good tidings unto the poor,
    bind up the brokenhearted,
    proclaim liberty to the captives,
    opening of the prison to [them that are] bound.

    Thank You Father for anointing Your children to do Your work. It is our joy!!!!

    Empty hands raised high,
    Awesome poem Pastor, made me shout with joy!!
